Such a shame for his family. I wonder what went wrong? He just got that plane a few weeks ago and had been overjoyed by it.

He really did .. his twitter profile pic has a plane in the cover and his photo with a headset. Conditions seemed clear .. FAA will get through the details.

No matter. He's gone.

For the above

NEW YORK — Richard Gordon, who undertook what became a harrowing and abortive spacewalk in a 1966 NASA mission, then orbited the moon three years later, but never achieved his dream of walking on the lunar surface, died Monday at his home in San Marcos, Calif. He was 88.

His death was confirmed by NASA.

Mr. Gordon and Charles Conrad flew in the September 1966 Gemini 11 mission to advance the technique for the rendezvous and docking of two spacecraft, a procedure required for moon landings. They soared to 850 miles above the Earth, setting a record for manned spaceflight

Mr. Gordon piloted the command module Yankee Clipper during its orbit of the moon in November 1969 while Conrad and his fellow Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean carried out the first extensive moon walks, four months after the pioneering Apollo 11 mission that sent Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon.

After taking photos of the moon’s topography to scout tentative landing sites for future missions, Mr. Gordon performed docking maneuvers, allowing his fellow astronauts to return to the capsule in the lunar lander that had descended from it.

“The name of the game as far as I was concerned was to walk on the moon, and at that time I was relegated not to do that,” Mr. Gordon told a NASA interviewer in 1999 when asked if he was disappointed that he had to remain 60 miles above the lunar surface after having come so far.

“I had a job and a function to perform,” he continued. “And I was happy for them.”

Bean, in an interview on Tuesday, said, “**** Gordon was the perfect crew member in that he was easy to get along with all the time, and no matter what happened he never got upset, through the ups and downs of training.”

Actor David Cassidy is currently hospitalized in Florida in critical condition with organ failure, his rep confirmed to ABC News.

The former "Partridge Family" actor's rep added that Cassidy was in an induced coma but that "he is currently conscious and surrounded by family."

Dude was 83 with health that had been failing for some time. Now, had the ***hole been shanked his first year in prison, that would have been worth thanking the Reaper for.

Sad to hear this. He came along during the golden age of Buckeye receivers (Glenn, Galloway, Boston, Stablein, etc) and his chippy attitude made him among my favorites
